Backyard Farms’ Tomato-Inspired Holiday Recipes
‘Tis the season for spending time with family, exchanging gifts and sharing delicious meals with one another. Whether you’re the head chef of your holiday dinner or just in charge of the appetizers, here are a few tomato-inspired treats the whole family will enjoy.
Dress up Shrimp Cocktail this year with a delicious recipe from Mary Ann Esposito.
With a sweet and tangy dressing and beautiful presentation, this shrimp cocktail may be the most exciting appetizer on the table. Use a juicy Somerset Pink or Tomato on the Vine as an edible bowl that holds the shrimp and unique, tasty dipping dressing. Find the full recipe here and enjoy!
Here’s another appetizer from Mary Ann – the sweet and bite-sized Cocktail Tomato Scoops.
Hollow out your fresh Cocktail Tomatoes (we recommend enjoying a few on their own along the way). Next, whip up a quick filling of cream cheese, yogurt, pistachios and more. Add the creamy mix to your Cocktail Tomatoes and voila! – You’ll have a fun snack that will leave your family reaching for seconds. Check out the full recipe here!
Someone else is handling the appetizers? No problem. Instead, opt for making an easy side dish. This Baked Tomato Casserole takes no time to prepare and may even steal the show.
Add fresh herbs and spices to your diced Tomatoes on the Vine and combine with the crumb topping for a subtle crunchy bite. Pop your casserole in the oven for about an hour, and the finished product is a dish of light and sweet flavors paired beautifully with a savory topping. Here’s how to make it!
